What is HackRU?

HackRU is a 24-hour hackathon at Rutgers University. We welcome hundreds of students to join us in building awesome software and hardware projects. Industry experts and mentors come from all over the country to create an environment that fosters an atmosphere of learning through tech talks and one-on-one guidance. We encourage beginner and advanced hackers alike to challenge themselves and expand their skills.

What should I bring?

Yourself, your ingenuity, hacking gear (laptop, monitor, hardware), photo ID, toiletries, sleeping gear, a change of clothes.

What's the application process?

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to hack, so HackRU runs registration on a first-come-first-serve basis rather than through application evaluations. That means registration fills up quickly, so make sure to register early!

Travel reimbursements?

Unfortunately due to university regulations, HackRU is unable to issue travel reimbursements or buses :(

Can I work with others?

Hackers can (and are encouraged to!) work in teams of up to 4 humans. The knowledge you can gain from teammates is invaluable, not to mention you might leave with a new best friend. We will be having a team-building after opening ceremonies for people who are looking for teammates.

Where is it?

HackRU will be taking place April 22-23, 2017 at the Rutgers Student Center in Piscataway, NJ.

Address:
83 Rockafeller Road,
Piscataway, NJ 08854

Who can come?

HackRU welcomes undergraduate and graduate students of all majors, backgrounds, and skill levels to come create. Unfortunately, if you are not a Rutgers student and you are under 18, you will not be able to attend. High school students who will be 18 by HackRU are allowed to register.

I'm new, what should I do?

That's great! We'd love to have you at HackRU. Throughout the weekend there will be workshops for you to get your feet wet, project ideas for you to try out, and mentors to guide you through the process.

How much does it cost to attend?

Like the best things in life, HackRU is completely free to attend, you just have to show up. We will be providing meals, snacks, and drinks for the entire event along with swag on swag on swag.

What shouldn't I bring?

Weapons or anything that can be construed as a weapon, alcohol, illegal drugs, animals. Use your common sense - if you wouldn't bring it on a plane or to school, don't bring it here.

Do you have any hardware?

Hardware will be provided by the MLH Hardware labs and a full list of available hardware will be posted here the week of the event.

Can I win anything?

Yes! We'll release more information about prizes as the event draws near.

Help! I still have questions!
